Heading on a quick trip? The bags listed below will ensure that you can pack all of your essentials in a lightweight and compact package. Whether you’re spending time in a new city or leaving the country altogether, these bags will help to make your trip an easy and enjoyable one.
#1 J E M M A – JACKIE 56
This premium travel carry-on carries with it an air of distinguished leisure. In elegant color ways and made with prime Italian, water-proof nylon, this is the perfect bag for someone who loves to travel. The roomy interior can fit a few outfits and up to 4 pairs of shoes in a separate, ventilated compartment. There’s also a toiletry bag, laundry bag and a panel on the back so you can slide it onto your suitcase handles for longer trips.
#2 The Weekender
Classic and elegant yet casual enough for any occasion such as lake trip, beach getaway or country vacation. Reasonably priced and durable.
#3 Cleary Weekender
Perfect for a quick business trip, with a lot of compartments to accommodate any needs. Tumi has been changing the game for years.
#4 Keepall Bandoulière 45
The ultimate classic that will last for years (if not generations). Definitely not for the price conscious consumer, although given the life span of luxury goods, increasing the spending budget and investing in an upscale good may not be a bad idea.
#5 CleverMade SnapBasket LUXE
The CleverMade SnapBasket LUXE is a collapsible yet sturdy tote. It’s perfect for anyone on the go, from toting your belongings to work, your gear to a yoga class or a weekend away. The stylish tote is a fashionable on-the-go tote which folds down flat to less than 1.5. If you need a quick bag to pack in for an overnight trip, the spacious SnapBasket LUXE is the perfect solution for hauling everything you’d need. And when you’re done using it, it collapses and can be stored in your car, closet or even packed away in another bag for a longer trip – now isn’t that clever.
#6 Black Canvas Weekender Garment Bag
The Combatant Gentleman’s unique, curved, single-zipper system and three-piece design can be completely opened up flat so a suit, blazer, or any other hanging item can be stowed in the central pocket like a traditional garment bag. It features two interior shoe compartments. Once your hanging garments and shoes are stowed, you simply roll and zip up the ingeniously designed panels and pack it like a standard duffel bag. This bag features rugged 16 oz cotton canvas, genuine leather details, and handsome metal hardware. Best of all, the weekender garment bag meets international carry-on requirements.
#7 The Victoria – Large Tote
An extra large, versatile tote bag that can be carried as a shoulder bag or hand bag. It’s handcrafted from leather artisans, and comes with a chrome-plated solid brass hardware and a a detachable shoulder strap. The design is equestrian-inspired like all Freedman’s products, but it’s so stylish and easy to use so it fits into any wardrobe.
#8 The Highlander | The Ultimate Backpack For Life On The Go
Super-organized Highlander Travel Bag created by MNML Leather, designed to open flat so it doesn’t have to be ‘unpacked’ and made with weatherproof leather directly from the founder’s family-owned tannery. MNML Founder Mitch Bank was inspired to create The Highlander Travel Bag after growing frustrated with the hassle of unpacking during his frequent short-term trips, and the inconvenience of getting through airport security checkpoints.
